    People who use their blogs as extended dating profiles, feigning interest in others when their real goal is simply to land a girlfriend.

    People who scheme and exploit weaknesses to get what they want. "Aww, poor thing, you're having problems...let me talk to you about it.....ZING! I'm in!" <insert cackle>

    People who show no respect for preexisting relationships, unless, of course, they are socially "acceptable," and therefore more intimidating.

    So basically, I don't trust cons, liars, and cowards.

    What is it exactly about secret forum banging that makes you suspicious, and more importantly, why the hell do you care?

    Does the last part of this even have anything to do with this forum, or are you just venting about life in general?

    Good job.

    Fluff has a political dimension for when we hear an opinion we don't like but can't answer, we distract with fluff.

    Fluff is the perfect political ploy because fluff gives deniability - we can deny we are making a political strike by saying it's only fluff, only a joke.

    And fluff has the political advantage of sucking up space and sucking up attention. Fluff denies oxygen to your political opponent. Your opponent can't breath and can't answer you and is slowly politically asphyxiated.

    But what is most interesting is that fluff is a spectator sport, just like bullying. In fact fluff is a more sophisticated form of bullying.

    And most of all, fluff works.

    It is only hanging onto this hangover of print by a nom de plume that enables anonymity to flourish.

    But privacy is over. Anonymity is completely over. And God is only waiting in the wings for you to realise this yourself.

    The only thing standing between you and the beatific vision is anonymity.

    I mean when you arrive at the day of judgement, you don't want God to ask, "Who are you?", now do you?
    Anonymity is the cataract that inhibits self-inspection?

    Should I be frightened if I understand Victor?
